[REBOL] Re: Cost of training.

I think a computer-based training program for REBOL
could be pretty effective.
IMHO, the learning curve for beginners is similar to
that of spoken/written languages:
* the "flow" of the syntax
* mastery of the above to take advantage of REBOL's
* Idioms, gotcha's and situational "tricks"
Most of this can be addressed with brief instruction,
repetition/memorization and learning-by-doing. The key
is that the interactive parts should be really
engaging. For example, check out a teaching-game that
IBM did for Java:
If anyone here has bandwidth and is itchin' to build
some instructional games, let us all know. It would be
a great contribution to the REBOL cause.
